THE SOCIETY WAS GRANTED ITS ARTICLES AND THE PREFIX “ROYAL” BY KING GUSTAF III IN 1772. THE SOCIETY WAS GIVEN PERMISSION TO ISSUE MEDALS IN 1802, AND CONFERRED THE RIGHT TO WEAR THE MEDALS TO THE RECIPIENT. THE SOCIETY WAS A FOCAL POINT FOR PERSONS OF PROMINENCE IN THE FIELDS OF GOVERNMENT, TRADE, SCIENCE, AGRICULTURE AND INDUSTRY, AND GAVE THE SOCIETY MEMBERS A VENUE TO DISCUSS NEW DEVELOPMENTS AND DISCOVERIES AND THEIR APPLICATION IN THEIR VARIOUS FIELDS. 1950, DEPICTED ON THE MEDAL’S OBVERSE, WAS THE OLDEST AND SECOND-LONGEST REIGNING MONARCH OF SWEDEN. A CONSERVATIVE, HE WAS THE LAST MONARCH TO BE SUPREME HEAD OF THE SWEDISH ARMED FORCES AND TO INTERVENE DIRECTLY IN THE POLITICS OF HIS NATION.
